STAR – Special Terms for Authors & Researchers

Researchers in developing countries often face difficulties in accessing commercially published journals. In recognition of the importance of providing access to research students who are undertaking their literature review, Taylor & Francis have set up an initiative to help overcome some of the problems. While it does not provide a complete solution for everyone, this is a significant gesture.

STAR provides online access for individual researchers from emerging regions to support writing and publication. It is currently available to researchers in Africa, in South Asia, and many parts of South East Asia. It uses an innovative voucher system – once the voucher has been downloaded it can be activated when needed, fitting in with the researcher’s requirements to take advantage of FREE access for up to a month. To acquire your voucher please look at the website, here:

Good luck with your research and writing!

    Good to know this. Will really contribute to quality of research in those areas. I do honestly hope that the students and researchers in the areas will be aware of this. Needless to say, most of the students and researcher do not even have access of internet.
